I built a third square foot garden on Saturday. This one is a 3×3 and is for tomatoes and peppers. I got some plants at the farmer’s market Saturday morning (along with 10 quarts of strawberries that I froze) and spent the rest of the day building and filling the box. I’m going to put sunflowers in those two empty squares:
I have a bunch of pots that I filled with growing mix and into which I’ll put herbs. I also re-seeded my second bed, which really didn’t do all that well. Just a few carrots and basil poked up. The tat soi did well and the two strawberry plants produce the occasional berry:
But my first box is doing really well:
That broccoli in the front is hiding all the greens from you, but I’m regularly getting my salad from there. Delish. And look at the tiny baby broccoli! Awwww:
Once I remember to ask dad how to plant potatoes, I’ll put those in the second box. I still hope to build some long boxes–4×12–to plant corn in the “old” garden.
